Graeme Posted September 6, 2012 Report Share Posted September 6, 2012 http://www.theage.com.au/opinion/political-news/gillard-singes-christian-lobby-over-offensive-gay-remark-20120906-25fye.html I'll admit that I'm a little surprised at our Prime Minister's remarks (she's a politician, after all, and there are more Christians in Australia than there are homosexuals), but I'll also say that I'm also surprised at my surprise. Some politicians here really do know what's right from wrong... occassionally. Unfortunately, they don't make a habit of doing that. More background information on what happened: http://news.theage.com.au/breaking-news-national/christian-lobby-defends-gay-slur-20120906-25gxe.html And as even more background, the ACL (Australian Christian Lobby) is not affliated with any of the main Christian denominations, though none have explicitly disowned their statements (as far as I know). They really are a political lobby group and have their own views on what it means to be "Christian". As a request, please remember that I consider myself to be a Christian and don't lump me, and other Christian gays, in with the ACL. Quote Link to comment
